Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

T'DAY

This morning I was hurting from sore muscles from the clean up day at the warehouse we had Monday so I finally got out of bed and showered at 4:00. It loosened up my muscles a little but they still hurt. I tried sitting in a chair and nodding off but that didn't work so I decided to go to work early and try to catch up on some things that have been hanging fire because I have been pretty busy the last couple of weeks.

I drove to the main road from the house and turned toward work. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw what I recognized as a cop car following me. So I reached across and pulled the seat belt across my lap and buckled it. While I was doing that I guess I crossed the line on the right side of the road.

He followed me to the turn to the office and when I signalled to turn he hit me with the lights. I opened the door and waited for him to come up. He said he wanted to do a sobriety test on me. I laughed and said that will be fine but that I was just going to work early. He laughed and said he was relieved that I was just going to work early because he was just going off duty. When he saw me wander across the line he thought he was going to haveto deal with a drunk for the last half hour of his shift.

Guess we were both happy!!!!!

We're ot talking back here we are talking arms, legs, back, stomach, neck, and a few other places. We did what I called in my youth a D'Day cleaning---named after my dad. Everything got moved. EVERYTHING. I am not used to doing that kind of physical exertion but I hung in there for the entire day---shoulda went home before noon.
